All you need:

• 1 (18.25 oz) box cake mix (any variety light in color)

• 1 container fat free Cool Whip, thawed
• 1 ½ cup skim milk
• 1 package cheesecake or white chocolate sugar-free, fat-free Jello pudding mix

All you do:

1.)    Pour 12 oz. soda into a large bowl.  Add the entire box of cake mix and in as few strokes as possible, stir ingredients together.

2.)   Line a muffin tin with cupcake wrappers.  Lightly spray the inside of each wrapper with a non-stick cooking spray.

3.)   Spoon batter into cupcake wrappers, filling them about ¾ full.  Bake according to box directions.

4.)   While cupcakes are cooking, mix skim milk, a few drops of green food coloring and pudding mix together.  Let chill in refrigerator for at least 15 minutes.

5.)   Once pudding has thickened, fold in cool whip until well mixed.  Frost cupcakes (once cooled) with pudding and cool whip mixture.  Optional: decorate with fresh fruit.
